Oh Mercy is a fantastic album. What's wrong with saying that?

O Mercy was a great album. That's the one with "The Man In The Long Black Coat" on it.. Great song!

I know some major Dylan fanatics who absolutely hate that record because of the production - Daniel Lanois fans they are not. I thought it was a great match. Man In The Long Black Coat is one of Bob's creepiest/saddest songs. The whole record is pretty sad. I love What Was It You Wanted and Shooting Star.

Don't forget the blistering "Everything Is Broken." :)

That's a great song.
I can't "Lanois all night long", but I do think that's a great album.
I don't have any issues with Lanois, but I can understand how some may be fatigued by some of his signature sound. There's so much out there, though that there's no time for that sort of whining...sort of like the whiners on this forum, seems like.

I like his work on Willie Nelson's "Teatro" album (w/ Emmylou) - I know some folks that dislike it precisely for that Lanois sound.

I personally hink his two solo albums are just as god as anything he produced, especially his first. Oh wait, he has three but I haven't hear the last one.

I saw him at N.O. Jazzfest in '87 - he was very good live.

I have nothing against Lanois. I recommend his seminal work with Martha And The Muffins, for instance...

Are you sure he wasn't the production genius behind Mojo Nixon and Skid Ropers' "I Wanna Be Stuffin' Martha's Muffin"?

Dylan used Brian Stolz (then of Nevilles and who Jer loved to play with) as the guitarist on that album; roughly contemporaneous with when Lanois produced Neville's Yellow Moon.
